Endoscopic Brow Lift

Struggling with sagging skin on your forehead and upper eyelids? Opt for an Endoscopic Brow Lift by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva in Newport Beach, CA. Achieve a refreshed, youthful look through a less invasive technique.

Endoscopic Brow Lift Benefits Await You

Discover a transformation that not only lifts your brows but also your spirit. An Endoscopic Brow Lift offers a groundbreaking way to rejuvenate your appearance with less risk and downtime. Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva in Newport Beach, CA specializes in this minimally invasive procedure that can refresh your look and elevate your confidence.

The natural process of aging

The natural process of aging often leads to sagging skin, slack muscles, and loose connective tissue in the upper part of the face, which can make us look much older than we really are. The good news is that there is a minimally-invasive plastic surgery that’s specifically intended to bring the eyebrows back to a youthful level and improve the appearance of the upper face.

Endoscopic Brow Lift vs. an Open Brow Lift

Today, endoscopic brow lifts and open brow lifts are the two most common techniques used for lifting the brows. Patients who opt for an open brow lift surgery can expect their surgeon to make a long incision across their forehead to tighten the underlying tissues and remove excess skin.

The surgeon will also get rid of any unwanted fat before pulling the remaining skin together and stitching the brow into its ideal position.

Compared to an endoscopic brow lift procedure, an open forehead lift is far more invasive and comes with a lengthy recovery period.

During an endoscopic brow lift in Orange County, a small incision is made at various points along the hairline and a tiny video camera called an endoscope is used to provide visibility during the procedure. An endoscopic brow lift can give surgeons the chance to detect any nerves that surround the eyebrows and protect them during the procedure. Endoscopic brow lifts are often preferred over open brow lifts because there is less pain and a shorter recovery involved.

Ideal Candidates for Brow Surgery

An endoscopic brow lift can be a good option for men and women who are concerned by a perpetual droopy and tired look. It may also make sense for patients who would like to improve their forehead wrinkles and the aged appearance of their upper eyelids.

While many endoscopic brow lift patients are in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, those in their 20s and 30s can sometimes benefit from this procedure as well. Patients should be in overall good health, be non-smokers, and have realistic expectations.

Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva to discuss your options for brow lift surgery in Newport Beach can help you figure out which procedure best suits your needs.

What to Expect During an Endoscopic Brow Lift Consultation

An endoscopic brow lift consultation in Newport Beach is the perfect way for patients to determine if this procedure is right for them. During the consultation, patients can expect Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva to discuss their aesthetic goals and discover whether they’d benefit most from an endoscopic brow lift or another procedure.

If a patient’s brow and forehead drooping resolve completely when Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva manually raises the eyebrows to a more youthful position, then they may be a good candidate for the brow lift procedure.

Should Dr. Ho Taghva decide that an endoscopic brow lift in Orange County is right for the patient, she will discuss the procedure and recovery process in detail. She may also share before and after photos of real patients to help set expectations.

Personalized Consultation: Tailoring the Procedure to You

Every face tells a different story, and your needs are unique. During your consultation with Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva, we’ll discuss your aesthetic goals and examine your facial structure. This personalized approach ensures that the procedure is tailored to your specific requirements, ensuring results that complement your natural features.

Preparing for a Surgical Brow Lift

To prepare for a brow lift in Newport Beach, patients will need to stay away from anti-inflammatory medications as they may interfere with the healing process. Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva will also recommend that patients quit smoking and drinking before the procedure and during recovery to minimize their risk of developing complications.

Combining Procedures for Enhanced Results

In some cases, combining an Endoscopic Brow Lift with other procedures, such as eyelid surgery or Botox injections, can provide more comprehensive rejuvenation. We’ll explore these options together to determine the best course of action for your desired outcome.

The Endoscopic Brow Lift Procedure

Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva performs plastic surgery procedures, including endoscopic brow lifts, at GALEA Center for Advanced Surgery. The center is Medicare Accredited (the highest level available for an outpatient surgery center) and is conveniently located next to the LEA Plastic Surgery offices in Newport Beach.

During an endoscopic brow lift in Orange County, Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva will make small incisions hidden at several points near the patient’s hairline to access the underlying tissues. She will then insert a tiny telescope or endoscope through the incisions before lifting the forehead and tightening any loose skin. The endoscope gives Dr. Ho Taghva the visibility she needs to make sure that the brow is lifted and reshaped safely and efficiently.

This procedure to elevate the brow is typically performed under local anesthesia as general anesthesia is usually unnecessary for this minimally-invasive plastic surgery. Unlike many other procedures, no drains or dressings are required for healing.

Patients can expect to see complete results within a few months when their swelling and bruising subsides. In most cases, endoscopic brow lifts take around an hour to complete.

Recovering From an Endoscopic Brow Lift

Post-procedure, patients typically experience minimal discomfort, which can be effectively managed with prescribed medication. It’s common to encounter some swelling and bruising, but these symptoms generally subside within a week. Most patients find they can return to work and their daily routines after about a week, though Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva recommends taking at least 10 days off to allow for optimal healing of swelling, bruising, and wounds.

During the initial recovery period, which usually spans one to two weeks, it’s advisable to keep the head elevated to minimize swelling. While rest is important, engaging in light activities such as walking around the house is encouraged to promote better healing. Any pain or discomfort following the surgery can be alleviated with prescription medication. To ensure a smooth and effective recovery, patients are advised to avoid vigorous activities for at least two weeks post-procedure. Detailed aftercare instructions are provided to each patient to guide them through this recovery phase.

Risks and Complications of an Endoscopic Brow Lift

Just like all surgeries, endoscopic brow lifts do come with possible risks and complications. The most common ones include numbness, scarring, and infection. Since Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva is an experienced brow lift surgeon, these risks and complications are rare.

Frequently Asked Questions About Endoscopic Brow Lifts

What exactly is a brow lift?

A brow lift is a procedure that enhances the look of the forehead and upper eyelid so that a patient’s entire face appears more awake and alert.

Should an endoscopic brow lift be paired with eyelid surgery?

Many patients wonder whether they should get an endoscopic brow lift along with eyelid lift. If a patient’s forehead drooping does not go away when Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva raises their eyebrows, she may recommend both procedures. An endoscopic brow lift combined with eyelid surgery can lead to incredible results.

What are the typical results of an endoscopic brow lift?

An endoscopic brow lift can smooth and tighten lines and wrinkles on a patient’s forehead. It can also rejuvenate their appearance so they don’t look “angry” or “tired.” This procedure can also reduce or even get rid of deep horizontal lines between the brows and of course, elevate the brow to a more youthful position.

Are brow lift results permanent?

Patients can enjoy long-lasting results after undergoing an endoscopic brow lift in Orange County. However, the natural process of aging may lead to additional drooping and patients sometimes elect to have another brow lift in the future.

Will an endoscopic brow lift lead to a “surprised” look?

Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva has discovered that many patients are concerned about looking permanently surprised or having a difficult time moving their forehead after the procedure. Fortunately, the endoscopic method is very unlikely to create this unwanted aesthetic result. Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva has the skills and knowledge necessary to create natural, subtle results.

Is a brow lift similar to a facelift?

A brow lift is performed to improve signs of aging solely in the upper face. A facelift, however, resolves aesthetic concerns mainly in the lower face, cheeks, and chin. Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva may suggest a facelift and/or neck lift in addition to brow lift surgery for patients who are showing severe signs of aging in both the lower and upper part of the face.

Is an endoscopic brow lift appropriate for a man?

While endoscopic brow lifts are more common in women than men, men with deep creases on their forehead can achieve a more youthful appearance with this procedure.
